Zephyr - Can't create issue from Execution of Test in Test Cycle

In JIRA > Tests > Execute Tests: When executing a Test and finding an issue we click on the pencil in "Defects" and the options are to either type in an already created JIRA issue or to click on "Create New Issue". Clicking on "Create New Issue" does nothing. Is there something missing?

Thank you.

Current JIRA version: 6.0.7

Hi JS,

Zephyr for JIRA 2.1 is available on the Atlassian Marketplace:


It is the most recent one we have and if you look at versions you can see 2.1 available for download. Only Zephyr for JIRA 2.1 is compatible with JIRA v 6.1. I would recommend you upgrade to 2.1 and not 2.0.

Kind Regards,


Hi JS,

Are you able to upgrade to Zephyr for JIRA 2.1? We have a lot of fixes in here as well as Zephyr for JIRA 2.1 is now compatible with JIRA v 6.1. Also, I answered one of your questions about doing a search using the Test Executions Navitotor; this feature is only available in 2.0 and 2.1.

Kind Regards,


Thank you. We may try using the cycleName operator to determine if the test is in a cycle.

We are looking into upgrading now but did not know a version 2.1 was available with Zephyr. I only see a 2.0.1 version in https://zephyrdocs.atlassian.net/wiki/display/ZTD/All+Release+Notes and the notes for the release don't tell me much.

Is the 2.0.1 version of Zephyr the latest and does it now work with the 6.1 version of JIRA? If so, we will upgrade.

Thank you.
